Ferguson: Not Good Enough

Barry Frustrated With Watford Showing

Barry Ferguson said Blackpool were simply not good enough at Watford, with The Seasiders losing 4-0 at Vicarage Road.

Two goals apiece from Troy Deeney and Mathias Ranegie made it a comfortable afternoon for the home side, leaving Ferguson angered.

"It wasn't good enough. It takes men out there to take it by the scruff of the neck. There was nobody there to do that," he admitted.

"I got brought up a winner and I'll always be a winner. If I've not played well, I've always given 100 per cent. I worked my backside off and that certainly didn't happen. I put Bish and Bash on at half-time and I got a reaction for about 20 minutes, then they score and we feel sorry for ourselves again. That's been a problem for a number of months."

The manner of certain goals was extremely disappointing, given that they came on the back of set-plays.

"It's a major worry. You can go through it and you can go through it and go through it as long as you want. The simple fact is if you don't pick up your man then they'll score goals, and that's what happened," Ferguson said.

The players were locked in the dressing room following the full-time whistle at Vicarage Road, and a reaction will now be sought in consecutive home games against Bournemouth and Millwall.

"What's been said in the dressing room will remain inside the dressing room, between the four walls. You can pretty much guess what's been said.

"If we play like that we've got no chance," Ferguson added.
